The story is stale, but the execution is above average.

Except for a few unfortunate scenes (one of which is in the trailer), it's a funny, engaging, romantic comedy.

Though the cast are excellent and there are several funny scenes, the film doesn't quite work, frequently relying too much on gross-out humour and not enough on a decent script.

It's a consistently amusing tale thanks largely to the eminently watchable cast.

Along Came Polly is an engaging trifle, flatulently overwritten yet filled with enough eccentric characters and comic timing to make it worth the risk.

Along Came Polly is not the sharpest movie ever made about a mismatched couple, but it made me laugh consistently.

Ben Stiller: the Edwin Booth in our contemporary theater of acute embarrassment and gross-out humiliation...

Parts of Along Came Polly are hilarious. Unfortunately, it's running with a series of toilet jokes that might been called Along Came Poopy.

Yes, it resorts to body-function humor. But it's still clever and funny.

Features a spot-on cast and peppy story that brightly accommodate the less-than-startling concept.

Within the context of what is essentially a formula picture, Hamburg comes up with lively and anarchic comic situations, and he comes up with them consistently.

There's enough originality here to offset some of the more questionable humor.

Like Feffer, things go better for the movie when it abandons its original aims.

Unfolds with brisk professionalism and enough smiles to keep you engaged.

It's only Stiller's skillful execution that keeps the pratfalls from being monotonous.

Unpromising premise proves an ideal showcase for the comic talents of Ben Stiller and, to a lesser extent, supporting player Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Delivers the laughs, but it feels more like an extended TV sitcom than a feature film.
